Can LASIK Correct Presbyopia?

Q:
Can LASIK correct presbyopia?

A:
It can help to some extent. LASIK, the laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis, is a refractive procedure conducted to help correct presbyopia.

Under this surgery, the surgeon creates an ultra-thin flap in the cornea’s outer protective cover, and then use laser to reshape the cornea’s outer layers, steepen its curve, and replace the epithelium.
